Abstract

Heritability studies are essential for defining genetic influences on disease risk and trait variability. Polubriaginof et al. show how massive amounts of data contained in electronic health records can be used for heritability studies on hundreds of phenotypes. Mining emergency contact information with comparison to existing gold standards showcases the broad utility of the approach.
